oilmen. so at the exact same time there is this huge climate protest going on in washington, obama is out playing golf with texas oilmen. and this is just after, you know, he gave his speech on at the state of the union saying that we cannot wait. the world is being destroyed by climate. we have to do something. >> that would have been really bad optics. >> luckily for him the press was so worked up about the fact that they couldn't get a photo of tiger woods that they didn't google the other two guys that he was golfing with. >> right. they didn't mention it. they didn't google it. it doesn't matter. they're not complaining about golfing with oil men. they're complaining about golfing with a celebrity and that they didn't get their time to ask tying area few questions. >> all right. two days ago senator marco rubio said the president's plan on immigration was dead on arrival. the president today reached out to several senators, including senator rubio. both sides have released statements saying they are committed to a bipartisan commission and they agree there is progress. joan, what

major part is the "washington post" editorialized he is to the left of president obama. he has been taken last week, i believe mr. gibbs, who i don't often agree with, said he was the most unprepared and unempress sive nominee that he had ever seen. certainly the most unimpressive that i've ever seen. it really is -- 99% of it is to do with the positions that senator hagel has taken, whether it be votes against sanctions against iran, whether it be his belief that the surge would be the worst thing since the vietnam war and the positions that he has taken on various issues is, frankly, been out of -- not only out of the mainstream but far to the left. >> you asked -- were asked about his qualifications which is now an issue. you said he is not qualified to be secretary of defense. you came a long way, senator mccain n 2000, you were running for president in your stomping grounds of new hampshire. here is what you said. >> secretary of defense, there's a lot of people that could do that one of them, i think, is senator chuck hagel. >> what's changed? >> that was the time and chuck ha

page story in the washington times today. quote, obama agenda is risky for red state democrats. guy cecil has good news for democrats. he pulled a rabbit, rather a donkey, out of his hat last year when the democrats gained seats. actually gained seats in a year that looked like a sure loser for democrats. that's his job, to pull off another miracle and hang onto the senate. maggie haberman is at politico, a senior politico reporter. this is important, although it's a year and a half off, people want to know how obama is going to make it. is he going to put points on the board, immigration reform, something on gun safety. he likes to talk about himself being a center left version i think of a ronald reagan, meaning he wants to get into the history books. the question is can he do it with a republican house? probably not. he's hoping to switch it. let's talk about the senate, however. a lot of people in the democratic party are lucky to be in the senate because they don't match up with the way those states vote in presidential elections. is this a danger? >> well, it's always a danger

inaugural address, president obama pledged to address the threat of climate change. well, he's got the attention of a few folks, because yesterday tens of thousands of americans gathered on the national mall in washington, d.c. to urge him to keep his word. an estimated 35 to 50,000 protesters participated in the forward on climate rally in what was billed as the largest climate rally in american history. now, the crowd marched to the white house in opposition to the upcoming keystone xl pipeline decision. the project environmentalists say would cause irreparable damage to our climate. they say the extraction and production of tar sands oil causes actually more emissions than conventional crude. and public water fly supplies, croplands, and recreational opportunities will all be at risk of dangerous tar sands oil spills. president obama's decision on whether to approve the keystone xl pipeline will really be his first major climate change decision during his second term. many of the folks at the rally, including senator sheldon whitehouse were there to show their support for presid

700,000 barrels of heavy crude oil into the country every day. president obama and the state department are expected to make a decision by the end of march, but it won't be easy. last weekend tens of thousands of environmentalists took to the streets of washington in what's being billed as the largest climate rally in u.s. history. opponents of the pipeline say that the extraction of the crude oil from the canadian tar sands is exponentially harmful to the environment. climate activist bill mcgibbon has said it's akin to lighting a carbon bomb, causing irrepairable harm to the environment. he emphasized in both his nagral and state of the union speempz this year wroosh proponents of the pipeline argue it will reduce our dependency on foreign oil and trans-canada, the energy company with the bid to build the pipelines, says it will create 20,000 jobs. last month 53 senators, 44 republicans and nine democrats wrote a letter to the president asking him to approve the pipeline saying it was a matter of economic development and energy security. in a recent poll 69% of americans sa

hearing, as well? this is all about showing once again they're willing to fight obama? >> that's a component of it. i think zachary's exactly right. you also didn't see the markets freak out over the fiscal cliff because we've sort of stopped believing the crying wolf of washington politicians and a sense of what -- if you look at the fiscal cliff eastbound if there were some deal being worked out which there isn't that boehner would have a hard time getting the votes for anything. barely got the votes for a sort of symbolic sequester replacement plan around the time of the fiscal cliff deal and so i think that especially having in their perception caved on the fiscal cliff and then having put off the debt ceiling, the republicans really feel like this is something they have to stand their ground on. >> chris, karl rove superpac has an ad out of bom's mess. let me play it and get your reaction to this. >> a bad idea. are you willing to see a bunch of first responders lose their job. teachers laid off. air traffic controllers and airport security. this is hardship on a lot of people

couple of other areas. big issues states are debating, of course, washington is debating. i want to start on the issue of obama care. governor jindal, you seem to be bucking the trend among republicans. a lot of republican governors are saying we're going to go with what the white house wants. we are going to expand our medicaid rules which is our option under the medicaid plan. we'll have to pay money but the federal government will pay more of it. you're saying, no, i'm not going to do that. other republicans are saying yes, you should. what do you know they don't know. >> one thing, every governor has to make the decision best know their state. it will cost louisiana taxpayers over a billion dollars in the next years. i agree with what the said in 2009. the president said doesn't make sense to put more people in the medicaid program without reforming the program. he was right in 2009. we have offered multiple times to meet with the president. we've offered to give flexibility on eligibility, benefit design, premium assistance, not a one size fits all approach. in louisiana alone,

frustrated with the speaker's lack of leadership. the "washington examiner's" byron york writes the effect of boehner's argument is to make obama seem reasonable in comparison. i'm sorry, mr. york, but didn't you read mr. boehner's editorial? he said he wanted democrats to get serious about the sequester cuts. in fact he said it twice. which frankly for him is well below par. >> replace the president's sequester, we need our democrat colleagues to get serious. >> get serious. >> get serious. >> get serious. >> get serious. >> yes, let's serious. i'm joined by kristen welker who's live at the white house. kristen, these cuts are no laughing matter, but how does the white house get house republicans to agree to additional revenue? what are you hearing? >> reporter: well, martin, i'm not sure that they're going to be able to in terms of strategy. we've seen president obama taking his case to the american people. you saw him do that yesterday in that clip that you aired with the president joined by first responders making the case that their jobs could be at risk if the sequester kicks
